secrets are like investments. According to wikipedia “An investment involves the choice by an individual or an organization after some analysis or thought, to place money in an asset that has certain level of risk and provides the possibility of generating returns over a period of time.” Secrets are exactly like that. We choose to invest in certain assets. By this i mean we choose to invest our secrts in certain people. And by investing I mean trust. Based on the number of secrets we tell a particular person and how well they keep it, we can see exactly how trustworthy a person is. We scrutinize our potential investments carefully, look into all the probable risks and then put our money in the best possible option. It is the same with secrets. We contemplate whether or not we should tell certain people about them, whether that person is trustworthy or not, whether it is a risk and whether or not we will get something good out of it. The very fact that we share a certain secret with a person shows trust. It shows us that we are interested in dealing with that particular commodity; i.e we are interested in maintaining close contact with that particular person.
We invest our secrets very carefully, based on which time would be best for us to disclose our secrets and which person would be more beneficial to us, in sorting out certain problems related to the secret. We play our cards carefully so that we do not have to regret the particular investment in future. Also we sometimes invest our secrets in certain people in order to get certain secrets out of them in return(immediately).
And the final result!! sometimes we get a huge bonus or dividend out of the investment. A life long friendship maybe, or perhaps even more!! but of course, many a time it so happens that we invest wrongly or the market crashes and we are left wounded- be it financially(in the case of investments) or emotionally(in the case of secrets). but eventually we do bounce back and we usually don’t stop investing!!!
so be careful and invest wisely.
